When Robert and I were in Orlando in March (and kneeling before the small, plastic, bumpy altar), I saw the "NYPD Pizza Delicatessen" and thought it was a little odd. Of all the things to name your pizza place after, why choose a law-enforcement body? Even after all the post-9/11 accolades (and those FDNYPD caps that do a brisk business down by Ground Zero), the picture of an NYPD officer conjures many images -- but "gooey cheese" isn't one of them.
I also wondered if the NYPD sanctioned the use of its name for such an enterprise, since the pizza joint's logo is a dead ringer for the NYPD badge that cops wear on their sleeves. As it turns out, it didn't, and I read today that it's suing over copyright infringement. They've been tussling legally for years, but now the NYPD wants to serve and protect its image and market itself through "official channels."
They might also have taken umbrage at the "Loiuma Special," a small pie topped with Haitian black beans and sliced broomsticks.
